Healey SR: the story of the last Healey at Le Mans

In November of 1967 Donald Healey decided to have a last attempt at Le Mans with an all British built entry and also a car built within the confines of the Donald Healey Motor Co. at Coten End, Warwick.

The car was to be designed using proven engineering techniques, with a rigid base construction, built up from single-curvature sheet metal panels which could readily be reproduced as a series-production job.
Known as the Sub Rosa car (secret) the company worked through the winter of 1967 and 1968 but before they got more than 3 months down the road in anticipation of the published Le Mans entries they announced the SR Healey-Climax with a Press release on 16th February 1968.
